When Victoria of Prussia (the Princess Royal) lost one of her sons, she was desperate. And her mother Queen Victoria, who lost her beloved holy husband, wrote that Vicky made such a fuss about a child, when she lost her husband.
Empress Elisabeth, who lost her first daughter through a dysentery, hide her feelings. Queen Elisabeth of Roumania (Carmen Sylva) wrote once in her diaries, when she asked about Sophie (Elisabeths daughter) years later, Elisabeth had tearful eyes and reddened cheeks.
Carmen Sylva herself lost her only child very young. She suffered from it very long.
